    I have sometimes seen argued that Guam was the first piece of US soil invaded because both where territories at the time, unlike now with Alaska as a state, but I’m not American so maybe somebody else can give a definitive answer.

    Battle of Colombus in 1916 was an earlier foreign invasion.

    Not true since 1812. Mexican revolutionary Pancho Villa invaded Columbus New Mexico back in 1916.

    Look up the punitive expedition. it was the first time the US flew planes in warfare.
